This month Jessica Feigal is covering Improving Technical Annotations and Estimates for your Projects and Pete Klein will talk about A Better API in WordPress using GraphQL.

Improving Technical Annotations and Estimates for your Projects

Jessica Feigal

Have you ever been in a situation where you were provided very little information and asked to estimate it out? Have you been in the followup scenario where you had to explain why your estimates were “wrong”? I have been in this situation multiple times and decided to do something about it. By requiring technical annotations and building out a process for providing better estimates, I found myself less and less in the difficult conversations about the work completed. Learn about my tips and tricks to technical annotations and estimating.

Better API in WordPress using GraphQL

Pete Klein

GraphQL is a cleaner and self-documenting alternative to traditional REST APIs. Learn how to use the WP-GraphQL plugin to turn WordPress into a powerful and easy to maintain API that can integrate easily with React, Vue, Angular, or native mobile application front-ends.
